The wedding day is the most significant day in every girl’s life and she dreams of looking gorgeously breath-taking on the day since childhood. Wedding Gown selection is the key to making the fairy tale come to life. Whether the bride wants to go all traditional or wants to opt an alternative style, she aims at getting a dress that will showcase her beauty at the very best and truly make her look and feel like a princess. Hence, careful planning and consideration need to be done in advance so the perfect gown can be found for the bride to be which may make her shine that evening.
Here are some tips that you should keep in mind when going to buy your dream wedding dress:
- What is the time and place of your wedding?
It is very important to know when and where you are going to have your wedding. If you are having a daytime wedding at the beach you should not wear ball gowns with long trails or embellishments. If you are going to have the wedding in a cathedral then you shouldn’t go for short slip dresses. Most fabric materials are appropriate for any season, but linen and organdy are more suitable for warm weather conditions, while velvet and brocade are best when it comes to winters.
- What is your budget?
Pre-planning is the key when it comes to fixing your budget for the wedding dress. Usually, it is seen that about 10 to 15 percent of the total budget is spent on the wedding gowns. You should decide what your budget is and take into account all the minor details such as the accessories and undergarments and the costs of alterations, shipping and professional steaming or pressing of the gown. After you have decided your budget range, talk to the salesperson from which you are going to buy the gown and ask him to show you the dresses that are in your budget range so you might not lose your heart to something expensive and regret after buying it.
- What is your body type?
Finding the perfect fit is the most crucial yet significant part of the dress selection. Know what your body type is and what suits you the best. If you have curvaceous thighs and hips and a small bust then you should go for an A-line fit. Alternatively, go for a square-neck dress if you are busty women. If you have a plus sized body then an empire dress might be perfect for you. It is quite similar to an A-line dress but the difference is that it cinches under the bust and flows outwards to make an A-line. If you have a petite body type, then go for vertical paneling or vertical embellishments to give an elongated look. Go for a sheath or flared dress if you have a long and lean body type.
You may find many conventions and believes according to different body types but you should go for the look which suits you the best and makes you look insanely beautiful.
